DISCLAIMER: The results which we have listed here are gross recoveries either by settlement, jury verdict, or decision by a judge. From the gross recovery, we deduct the attorney’s fee, costs, and lien amounts for the medical providers. The deduction for the attorney’s fee is made because we work on a contingency basis; if we don't recover - you don't pay. That also means that our attorney’s fee and the costs which we expend on your behalf in order to prosecute the case are deducted from the recovery, if any.
We are also required by law to deduct from the recovery certain liens held by governmental entities and insurance companies which have paid for or provided medical care or treatment because of the injuries from an accident. These liens include those held by Medicare, Medicaid, health insurance providers, and workers compensation insurance providers.
Also, these results may be more or less than typical recoveries for these types of injuries. However, we invite anyone to compare these results to the results of others. Of course, a client should not choose a lawyer based solely on past results.
The value of a case depends on many factors. These factors include who or what is at fault and how much. The value also depends on the exact nature of the injuries, the extent of the medical expenses in the past, the medical expenses to be incurred in the future, the loss of income in the past, the loss of earning capacity in the future, the type of medical care and treatment received, whether the person received surgery and if so what and how many, complications from the surgeries, loss of income or the ability to earn income in the future, and the experience of the pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, physical disability and impairment, mental anguish, inconvenience, scarring, and disfigurement, all from the date of the accident until now (for the past) and from now into the future for the rest of the life of the injured person (for the future). Any one of these factors can offset the absence of another.
